OVERVIEW

The teaching of naval electrical systems aims to consolidate the skills of the naval engineers students in an application context of the knowledge of electrical engineering. Training proposals are proposed on the sizing methods of the on-board electrical system, proceeding from the definition of the most appropriate configuration in compliance with the normative dictates to the study of the electrical balance and concluding with the choice of protection devices.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The design principles of the on-board electrical systems are illustrated, with particular attention to the choice of the scheme, the voltage levels, cable sizing and the choice of protection systems.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The aim of the course is to introduce the student to the basic problems related to the operation and design of the electrical systems on board. The object of the study consists of a representation of the main components of the electrical systems and their sizing with specific reference to the naval sector.

Teaching methods

Theoretical lessons and exercise (5 hours per week)
